Bringing back the Denman pomaderris
The critically endangered Denman pomaderris (Pomaderris reperta) is getting a new lease on life thanks to a recent translocation project.
The Denman pomaderris is only known from a few areas surrounding the township of Denman in the Upper Hunter Valley of New South Wales. This project is a partnership between Saving our Species (SoS) and Glencore Australia which aims to establish self-sustaining populations of the species within mining rehabilitation and offset sites. Over 250 Denman pomaderris seedlings have been planted so far.
Local primary school students and a local Landcare group have also supported the project through planting days with students creating their own Denman pomaderris gardens. The seedlings used for the project were grown at the Australian National Botanic Gardens.
